i  have  very  bad  news ,  hold  your  knees .  

the  machines  of  the  mother system  are  here  right  this  moment ,  all  around  you , and  they  will become  more .
this  could  be  a topic  all  by  itself ,  but  the  easy  answer  is...  machines  are  form follows  function ...  what  a machine  does  is  defined  by  the  need  it  solves  more  than  a  thinking  aware  process.
You haven't even got news, let alone good or bad. Just clutching at straws.
The machines we have aren't even remotely similar to what you're suggesting. Your claim that humans will go extinct followed by machines spreading throughout the galaxy is nonsensical.

good  answer ...  let  me  try  again  then .  your  home tower computer is  not  any  diffrent  than  those  of  the  very  distant future .
a  great  meny  of  the  standards  of  today   will  not  change   in  the  far  distant future .

the operating  system  will  change  to  something  called  a flat  addressing  register...   the  stack  counter  will  not   have  a problem  with  the  640  barrier...  

nearly  everything  you see  around  you  today  will  change ...  but  the  machine  systems  of  power  ,  communication  and  transportation   will  all  stay  the  same ...   its  important  to  remember  that  there  will  be  a remarkable  catastrophy  that  will  change  a great  meny  things ....   but  practicaly speaking...   you  personaly  would  not  have  much  to  learn ,  because   most  things  would  not  have  changed ,  somethings  ,  like  motor  oil  rateings  ,  gas  pump operation  ,  phone  service  ,  traffic  signals ...   would all  be  the  very  same  as  you  are  use  to ...  

i  can  tell  that  you  are  more  bent  on  me  being wrong   than  any  thing  i  am  saying  being  unsound ...
it  matters  not  if  i  am  right  or  wrong ,   this  will  all  happen   long  after  we  are  both  gone.

i  should  point  out...the  only  craft  to  leave  the  solar system ....  are  machines.
in  a few  years,  i  will  be  right without  needing  any greater  insight  than  reading  the  news

What nonsense. Our greatest machines can't maintain themselves for billions of years, let alone travel to different dimensions.

How much you want to bet? Rocks can leave the solar system too, what you're suggesting is far more complex than anything we have built, or even theorised.

The above statement speaks volumes about your own self. And in regards to what defines the end of the human race, just remember you are Human. No matter what you believed to have already happened, will happen, how it has happened or how it will happen. You just like the rest of us are Human. And what the rest of us wants right now, at this moment is not to have a perfectly good thread ruined by such lacklustered and failed attempt at giving flexanimous speeches, which turns out to be nothing but fallaciloquence.
Please, keep in mind that while all opinions and views are tolerated within a respectful and common sense community, it does not mean that the more you spout, the more the rest of us will drink.

:no:
Kind Regards.

I think there will always be human beings if we use any good sense at all.  We will of course evolve, and that will probably include incorporation into our being mechanical or technological things, but who knows.

We face a number of crises, but none of them, not even the heat death of the universe, cannot be overcome.

Wrong. I don't even think you actually grasped the meaning of the words I used.
For my own sanity, I'm going enable the ignore function regarding all of your posts.

What an onslaught of hot air, Heath Robinson semantic dithering, and baseless statements. I got through 2/3 of the article before giving up. Sounds more like an Eng-Lit university student's coursework than someone interested in communicating genuine ideas. Despite all that, skipping to the end:

"Given evolution’s trajectory, short of another asteroid collision or global cataclysm, we will almost certainly become augmented versions of our current selves."

Couldn't agree more.

Something tells me that the colonization of other planets over the years will change our bodies so that 'Humans' as we know them now will be vastly different.

For those on Earth, I think their skin will get darker as the temperature rises, what happens on Mars, Gilese or wherever remains to be seen...but not by me (sad face).
